This was THE best place to eat in town. Sad not many people had heard of it. They made all their gelato in house, and used old family Italian recipes. Now out of business :(

They have closed. My wife and I went frequently. They had good specials and great gelato. It was in a great place and we dug the outside dining area. Their stuffed pastas were great. I'll miss my regular order of manicotti with marinara and pesto...More

Morelli's closed in June 2014. They had the best gelato in town, some very good entres, and the most bizarre version of carbonarra I've ever had. Nonetheless, they'll me missed.

The food is delicious! I would highly recommend the spicy sausage linguine. It is a little spicy but so good. The amount of food is unbelievably large so be prepared for leftovers. The waitress was helpful in picking a wine that went with my meal....More

Morellis is a great restaurant with food cooked from scratch, the old-fashioned way. With one exception, over the past 5 years I have always had great service there. If you have any problems, just ask for Mr Morelli. He is always there. Just visited in...More
